today. rebekah brooks, former editor of news of the world testified. she was arrested sunday amid allegations that the tabloid was paying off police. she this wasn't the first time she was questioned. police payoffs have come up time and time again over the years. i'll play her testimony from today in a moment, but let's look back at what she had to say back in 2003. >> can i just ask of whether you ever pay the police? >> excuse me? >> do you ever pay the police for information? >> we have paid the police for information in the past. >> and will you do it in the future? >> it depends on -- >> we operate within the code and within the law. there is a clear public interest, and same holds for private detectives, subterfuge, whatever you want to talk about. >> it's illegal. >> no, no, no. as i said, within the law. >> over the years, brooks has tried to back away from that testimony. but it came up again today when the former editor was asked to clarify exactly what she meant by the statement. here is what she had to say. >> i can say that it -- i have never paid a policeman myself,

his first in command, rebecca brook, was sort of toeing the appropriate line. so whether there's a cover-up there that reaches the highest levels of newscorp or whether it's just the head of a company where there are problems and he's trying to fix them as best he can, i guess we'll -- we may find out. we may not find out. >> some people seem to feel it's really that connection between the rebecca brook, the "news of the world" editor, formerly, and the power that she really had in politics. and david cameron's former assistant also having worked over at the paper. that there just seems to be this coziness that is making people uncomfortable. >> well, i mean, we have the same thing in washington frankly. there's been a lot of coziness over the years. the white house press corps and the -- and government at all levels. i think that's a problem when people live and work and depend on each other for their livelihood. as the press and powerful people do. but, you know, i think murdoch is probably -- may not be the person this hits. i mean, i wonder if there's -- if there's an equiv

to declare victory and say yes. >> well, take a look at david brooks' column today in "the new york times." that is one of the most brilliant columns called a no-brain no-brainer. >> you preferred to david brooks' column in today's "new york times." david brooks by all accounts a conservative. i'm with you. a spectacular column. i want to quote the last passage to you. i happen to have it right here in front of me. how about that? it says if responsible republicans don't take control, independents will conclude that republican fanaticism caused this default. they will conclude that republicans are not fit to govern and they will be right. do you agree with david brooks and that conclusion? >> oh, i do. i was with him here recently at the aspen festival. bright guy, thoughtful person. but, you know, really, i know these wonderful republican colleagues and democratic colleagues. houn how could they ever get to a point where some guy is pulling out a sheet of paper that they signed when everything was roses in america and now we're headed for the bow wows and he's standing throughout shrill

. >> rebekah brooks, her testimony yesterday said the company acted quickly and concisely in the hacking scandal. but she's been arrested by police. how did she do? >> she looked pretty shifty to me at all of the commons hearing evidence yesterday. i didn't quite believe a word she said. once more, what said was plainly not true because she didn't cure it early. as we know, news executives who could it be aside from rebekah brooks stood in way of the investigation. did everything to make sure it was killed off early. >> what about andy coulson? we talk about the impact on cameron, did cameron throw him under the bus? >> he tried to, but i suspect coulson is in a position to dump on all the news corp. people if he wants to. he can strie to implicate other people. >> what about john yates? he's criticized for shutting down the original phone hacking investigation. i'm reminded of that show "star trek" that every time an officer was at the party he was going to get killed. >> i guess he's the most obvious fall guy. on the other hand i think he was a roughly honest cop. the reason he closed

the "sun" to come back on to his hands. david come cameron is close friends with rebecca brooks, the editor during this scandal, and is now the top executive. what hugh grant said to me yesterday, basically, the actor, is, it stinks. the stench of collusion between government, politics, media is so entrenched here that one this nasty story got going, the sewage was going to seep across everybody. >> is there a sense, though, that the sewage has now been mopped or is this just the beginning? >> no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. and in case you didn't quite get that, i'll say it again, no. because, tom, what we're going to get next are these two public inquiries, one into the hacking, one into the payments made by the police. and then it gets really interesting. because then the police are going to have to start to investigate, not only who made the payments, which policemen received them, it's all against the law. it will be a question of, come with me, please. i think you have some questions to answer. and nobody for a moment doubts that some people will find themselves before the courts,
